Tamora and David will start the show off with some nice, traditional Irish tunes on fiddle, concertina guitar and flute. There are rumors that Alden Robinson and Nathaniel Stimson will be joining them for a couple of sets towards the end of the first half. All bets are off for the second half when Glen Loper joins Tamora and David to complete the local contra dance trio known as STEAMPACKET, with tunes from Ireland, Quebec, Cape Breton, Southern US, and the prairie.
